The Los Angeles Lakers' training camp has added more wing depth to the roster by inviting former University of Detroit Titan Nick Minnerath, according to Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD. Minnerath went undrafted in the 2013 NBA Draft.
Minnerath did not play for the Lakers' Las Vegas Summer League team but was on the Sacramento Kings' summer league roster. He averaged 5.6 points and 1.8 rebounds over five games. In his final season with the Titans he averaged 14.6 points and 5.9 rebounds. He also averaged 39.7 percent from deep in the three years he spent in college.
Minnerath is expected to join Marcus Landry (has a "small" guaranteed deal) and Elias Harris (received a two-year deal with one year guaranteed) in training camp. Chris Douglas-Roberts was "expected" to receive an invite but there have been no updates.
In the meantime, Minnerath took to Twitter to thank the Lakers organization for giving him an invite:
